Nowadays, the ways in which male family caregivers experience their burden are frequently discussed by social scientists. Fewer studies can be found which deal with their expectations of specific respite services like assisted vacations. Nine expert interviews with male family caregivers who went on an assisted vacation together with their dependent spouses are used to identify the expectations, burdens, and the influencing factors. The study finds that male family caregivers have expectations of care, service, and offers for themselves, which are influenced by their own role shift and gender-based processes. As a result, information was found that could help design and develop assisted vacations.
